Adobe fixes critical Flash flaw (so upgrade right now)

Adobe has fixed that critical flaw that afflicted so many versions of Flash. So if you’re interested in not being on the wrong end of a malicious attack you would do well to upgrade to the latest version of Flash, version 10.1.

The update brings an additional 32 fixes to various issues afflicting Flash.

The update is available for all versions of Flash, so this isn’t an example of Windows users getting an update then the rest of the world has to wait.

Of note: there’s still vulnerabilities in Adobe Reader and Adobe Acrobat, which means that malicious PDFs (yes, they exist) can still affect you. Adobe says it will release a fix later this month.

The wonders of closed-source software!
